Our Top Recommended Chain Link Products
Chain link fence was first invented in 1844 in England. Although the process of manufacturing has changed, metal has not. A chain link is still the most durable and versatile material for building a fence.
America is still the world leader in chain link manufacturing. The USA provides high quality manufacturing creating a highly durable product.
Common rolls come in 20’ or 50’ lengths, with heights ranging from 3 to 12ft. The mesh size tells you how far apart the diamond wires are in the fabric. This can vary in length depending on your needs but the standard size is 2”.
The 3 different types of material are zinc coated, aluminum and stainless steel. Zinc will last 12 – 15 years with no maintenance whereas aluminum will go 20-25 years even in hard weather. Stainless is more durable and typically found in commercial or industrial applications. So for an average home we recommend a zinc coated fence.
Many choose to dip the chain link in paint, but this will only last 3-5 years. A better option is to have a plastic coating put on the chain. This PVC will not crack or peel very easily, providing longer lasting protection.
In conclusion choosing a chain link fence is not a one size fits all endeavor. It is important to know the application that you are going to be using the fence for.
